Áron Szilágyi, three times Olympic champion, World and European champion in sabre fencing, has moved to London. He said nobody recognizes him on the tube. Therefore, he can live undisturbed in the UK capital.
Nobody recognizes him in London
Áron Szilágyi won his third Olympic gold consecutively in individual sabre fencing in Tokyo in 2021. Afterwards, he rested for a couple of months. He said he needed time and new impulses. It seems he found that on his wife’s side in London – rtl.hu reported. He cleared in the Hungarian commercial TV channel’s morning show, Reggeli, that his wife found a new job in London. He followed her without hesitation to the capital of the United Kingdom, he added.
“Nobody recognizes me on the tube” – he highlighted in Reggeli.
He added that his life in London is much calmer than in Budapest.
In Hungary, he has a lot of obligations and public appearances. Therefore, he regularly travels home. In London, he has been training with the English fencing team. Meanwhile, he continues working in Budapest’s Vasas Team, too. He has been the president of the Vasas Sport Club Fencing Division since 2020.
He prepares for the next Olympic Games
It seems that the rest did well for the three-time Olympic champion. In March, he achieved brilliant results in the Gerevich–Kovács–Kárpáti individual world cup.
“It has never happened before during my career that I finished an international contest with double gold” – he said. Szilágyi won gold both individually and as part of a team. However, he does not stop. Szilágyi started preparation for the 2023 Paris Olympic Games.
Áron Szilágyi is the only male fencer to win three individual Olympic gold medals. Moreover, he did that consecutively. He began fencing at age nine at Vasas SC in Budapest, which remains his club as of 2015. His first coach was György Gerevich, whom he considers his personal hero alongside György’s father, seven-time Olympic champion Aladár Gerevich – Wikipedia reported.
